Interesting. Because H264 (MP4, patent encumbered) is hardware accelerated, while VP8/9 (WebM) is not.

How to wire water heater for 120 Volts
Interesting. For a 240v/5.5KW heater and $10.50/kw demand charge, cut the base monthly charge from $57.75 to $14.44. But also change from 2 hour recovery to 8+ hour recovery. And some argue its a code violation because you're not exactly running it according to directions.

Light Pollution Hurts Insects and the Environment
newly built and strongly lit gas stations had a high initial activity of insects for the first two years. The activity decreased quickly in later years. Eisenbeis said this is an example of the vacuum cleaner effect.

2001 Translation an American English Bible
From the Septuagint, an early Greek translation of an earlier Hebrew translation -- much earlier than the Masoretes standardized Hebrew version. Particularly significant for Genesis 5, the ages of the patriarchs?

Do files need to be re-written once a year? - PC Hardware | DSLReports Forums
Bit rot is real -- at least over five or six years, one found a few MP3s with bad CRCs. Is this what I'm seeing? Files over a year old just sitting there and the MD5 changes? It seems doubtful but I cannot yet find any other plausible explanation.

This only passes 0-600Hz (Blocking UHF TV 36 and up).

Amazon Shipping Slow : amazon
Amazon B as in Bad, A as in Awful, D as in dropping. Even prime members experiencing days to ship. Here's someone waiting 9 days to ship. Fine, if we KNOW that it takes up to 2 weeks (14 days) to ship, but terrible if you don't tell people.

Hollinger Metal Edge - Since 1945!
Acid-free CD envelopes can replace jewel cases. (A CD-RW survives 250F just fine, without even an increase in error rate. But the polystyrene jewel case may melt at 183F and the archival polypropylene at 158F. Paper is easier on the environment and won't even char until above 350F. And paper takes less room.)

The Safe Way to Put a PGP Key in Your Twitter Bio
Egads. The safest way to publish your key is to tweet? But there's nothing safe about twitter. I mean, seriously, who's the mightiest tweeter in all the land? I'm supposed to follow THAT lead? You have GOT to be kidding me. Still, it's an interesting idea.

Real ID - Federal Control Over Identification and Movement: Citizens' Council for Health Freedom
It's not real ID that's the threat. It's ID, period. Homeless people can't get services once their wallet or purse is stolen, because they no longer have ID. After that, they can't get ID, because you can't get it without a physical mailing address that you can prove is yours by presentation of utility bills. Real ID is merely an extension of racism and bigotry already enshrined into law at the state level.

Tin Lee Electronics :: Pricing
Usually you just need a generic FM trap and maybe a UHF low pass filter, for maybe $3 and $30 respectively. But consider our case: VHF TV carrier channel 10 starting at 192MHz is the lowest channel; UHF TV carrier channel ending at 602Mhz the highest. You could choose a custom filter of this nature. Customer filters here start at $150. But you're paying labor, so it's really not so much if that's what you need.

Disappeared News: Google compromises Gmail privacy, see if you are affected
Right. I'd forgotten that they posted people's contacts in the old buzz (google plus) without permission. Very bad for journalists and whistleblowers. The bad part of using any system where your data isn't individually encrypted at rest.

Google Groups get site as property not just verified
Lord this is hard. You can add a site to the Google webmaster tools and verify it 'in a general way' but not be able to list or select it. There's another page to add it so that it actually lists. Egads. My head is an exploding pumpkin.

SSL FAQ and Troubleshooting - Documentation - cPanel Documentation
Google says use https or drop out of the index. Certificate authorities say us $300 a year for *.example.org, and you can't use example.org, or $200 a year for www.example.org AND www2.example.org and change the cert every time you add a subdomain; hosting companies say pay us $100 a year more plus dedicated IP addresses which may or may not be needed -- are you SURE that HPPS isn't VASTLY more trouble than its worth? It's certainly not secure, since virtually every government and about 10 times that many corporations can mint a phony certificate for YOUR site.

Most children sleep through smoke alarms, investigator warns | Technology | The Guardian
The suspicions were borne out by research Coss carried out with Professor Niamh NicDaeid, of Dundee’s centre for anatomy and human identification, which repeatedly exposed sleeping children to the sound of industry-standard smoke detectors inside their homes. More than 80% of the 34 children aged between two and 13 did not respond to the alarm. Only two children woke up every time and none of the 14 boys woke up at all.

“When we started to explore why this was happening and we looked at other types of frequencies of sound we found out that a lower frequency sound … combined with a voice – generally a female voice – was much more effective at waking children up, and in actual fact woke up 94% of children that we tested,” NicDaeid told Today.
